Book Description
Enter Laura's World...
Her family is brutally murdered, and she finds herself on her knees praying for things she never could have imagined. Her dark journey of revenge takes off as she hunts her family's killers, while being chased down by a troubled detective, his lovelorn partner, and an inner voice that grants her no peace. Will she get her justice before time runs out? Will her own lust for vengeance consume all that is left of her in the process?

About the Author
Lewis Aleman grew up and still resides just outside of New Orleans. In 1999, he received a degree in English with a focus in Creative Writing from Louisiana State University. While there, two of his short stories were published, "Red Velvet" and "Saturday Night", both in Legacy Magazine, Fall 1998 and Spring 1999. Also, three of his poems were published during this time. His first novel, entitled Alone, was contracted to be published upon its initial submission to Commonwealth Publications in 1998; however, the company went bankrupt mere weeks before pressing. After graduating, he taught high school English for five years, where he established and moderated a Writer's Club for four years. While teaching, he wrote and recorded two songs, "Not the One" and "Still Standing", that received steady airplay on 106.7 The End in New Orleans. Currently, Lewis is working steadfastly on promoting Cold Streak while writing its prequel entitled Rage, and his writing is being taught in some New Orleans schools.

Besides writing, Lewis Aleman also enjoys playing guitar, restoring/hot rodding cars, working out, reading, website design, and recording music. On the rare occasion where sleep is allowed between all these activities, he enjoys that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderfully dark, suspenseful, and poetic, December 22, 2007
By A. Tunis "book worm" (New Orleans, LA USA) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
What would you do if your family were murdered? Aleman explores this question in a fast-paced, character-driven, gothic-style story that doesn't seem to follow any of the rules. What you expect to have as the climax of the novel comes in the first third of the book, making you thirsty to see what he's got up his sleeve. While mostly dark, there are moments of humor that are truly funny and lines that border on poetic. Two or three scenes are pretty gory, and the voice that haunts Laura creates some disturbing images. Andarus and Irene's constant bickering had me literally laughing out loud. (I have to side with Irene and say that you can't use 'confront' like that.) There are enough literary references to satisfy an avid bookworm like myself, but the novel never feels weighed down with them. People who enjoyed China Mieville's King Rat will find themselves drawn into the dark side of Riverview. The ending is vaguely reminiscent of Great Expectations, yet much more satisfying. What more could you want?
